In this presentation we introduce a family of gossiping algorithms whose members share the same structure though they vary their performance in function of a combinatorial parameter. We show that such parameter may be considered as a “knob” controlling the amount of communication parallelism characterizing the algorithms. After this we introduce procedures to operate the knob and choose parameters matching the amount of communication channels currently provided by the available communication system(s). In so doing we provide a robust mechanism to tune the production of requests for communication after the current operational conditions of the consumers of such requests. This can be used to achieve high performance and programmatic avoidance of undesirable events such as message collisions.
